TO MAKE A BALKY HORSE DRAW. 
TBI London Times gives a remedy which proved sao- 
eeiafal. After all sorts of means bad been tried and 
failed, it was snggested that a simple remedy nsedln 
, Jndla should be tried— that Is, to get a small rope and 
attach It to one of the fore feet of the stabbom animal, 
the person holding the end of the rope to advanoe a 
'ifStv paces, taking with him the horse's foot, when, as a 
' tfattsr of oonrse, the horae mnet follow. The sngges- 
* ilon was at first ridiculed, bat at last a rope was broaght 
' A applied as deaorlbed, when the horse Immediately 
Innoed, and in a few. mlnates was but of sight, much 
toNiM ainBEemeht of the crowd. The experiment is

A^TTATica AT South . BosToir.— A correspondent 
Mia .us the . following respeoting operations In the 
boating world of South 'Boston : 

"Some eight or ten new boats have been built the 
piet winter, and it is expected that a general contest 
vill take plaoe some time in Jnly. There Is a part of 
this place oalled 'Bay Ylew,* and a Clnb is about or- 
erg&nixiDg, to be called the <Bay Ylew Yacht Olnb;' 
tm have a beantlfnl yacht nearlv ready for lanncblng, 
tcM called the ' Bay Ylew Belle she was modelled 
and . bnllt by J. W, Florae, and reflects credit on his 
skill. If good looks and a good model have anything to 
do with sullng, she will be a hard one to beat. We are 
all gettloB ready, and expect a fine time the eoming 
sanmer. The yaohts Nettle, Macduff and Banthee have 
changed owners since lost year, and we.expect to see 
thtseboata do something, as uelr owMia are'determlned 
to keep np the reputation they baverwon. It la hoped , 
dfo, tnat the Beomit will figure some among the ten-ton 
beau."- 



FinsT iw TBI Field.— Our friends et the " Omaoatl 
Olab" were out on the Ifilh, In their old boat, "Wave." 
They were la fUl anirorm. and took a row np the North 
River as &r u <• Strykar*! Bay," retnrnlag abont nine

PEDEllTBI&llISH. 



Orriowow Airs LoaiH.— Thise Ohteago men have not 
yet come any arrangeuent for a second race that we are 
aware of. The followlDg correspondence has passed be- 
tween them on the subject : 

To PaoriMoa Orrianoir.— Having understood yon 
are dlaaatlsfled with tbe result of onr late eonteat, I beg 
leave to say I will mn yon within two weeks the same raoe 
of fifteen times around the circle— or lees or more, at 
your option, for (Se or 910O ; yon to choose one judge, 
myself one, and they the third. Should you think proper 
ition I will deposit the stakes with 



to accept this pro 

L. J. North & Co., of North's Amphitheatre. 

Tours truly, Jamis Looan. 

To Ma. Jahks Loqaw.— On perusing the Democratic 
Press of this morning I observed your challenge di- 
reeted to me— vlt: to mn round theclrcle of the Amphi- 
theatre fifteen times or more or less, at my option, for 
a wager of $60 or $100. Being an expsrlecoed runner, 
I presume y;n are aware of the disadvantage a runner 
of my gait has In going ronnd a small circle, and as the 
only correct war to decide on superiority is to run 
upon level ground In a straight line ; in this way I will 
aooept your offer, for two hundred dollars, to run a 
quarter of a mile. The time, as ahio the plaoe, to be 
selected as you have aaggested. Yours reapeotftilly, 

H. G. OrrioNON. 

To PaorBSson Oma>oir,— I see by voar card you do 
not see proper to aooept of my proposition to run me 
again around the circle of the Amphitheater, but offer to 
run me a straight quarter of a mile for 9200, which I 
beg respectfully to decline at present, but will meet yon 
half way. That la, I will run yon one third of a mile, 
say fourteen times around the olrole of the Amphithea- 
tre, for 9100 a sld^ and cne-tbitd of a mile on a straight 
road for $100 a side, both play or pay. Ohdoslng of 
judges and time as In my first propoiiUon. 

' Youra truly, James Loqaw. 

P. S.— Should a quarter mile race suit yon better I 
win accommodate yon. 

We have not received OtUgnon's roplv to this lest 
commnnloation, but prceume that he will not agree to 
run In the Circus a^aln, as his opponent has an ad- 
vantage over him, he, Oltlgnon, making long strides, 
while Logan takes abort steps, by whioh he is enabled 
to turn to better advantage. 

Thomas Wood, of East Cambridge, will -run Joe 
Travis, 8 or 3 miles, for $260 a aide. . Man and money 
ready at Adams Billiard Hall, Cambridge street. 

J. 0. Gllliway, of Boston, having understood that 
Jim Graham is anxious for a spin of a quarter of a mile, 
wlU run him tbat dlstanoe for from $0 to $26 a side. 
An answer tbrcngh the Cufpeb will be attended to. 

'T'WoitACCB AT JSiBf'OAMBBiDOB.- On Thursdoy af- 
ternoon, 24th, a large orowd assembled at the Lechmere 
House, to witness the pedestrian natohes previously 
noticed. The day was rainy and the road la a very bad 
oouditicn. The entries for the first race— 8>j miles- 
were the Boston Buck, John HntohelWn, Qeo. 4lrown, 
and Joseph Murch ; bat owing to some cause, only Buck 
and Hntcnerson toed the soratoh. [We here wish to 
state that if Brown and Muroh desire to be supported 
by tbe public they ahonld run when they allow their 
names to be pat upon the bills, nnlesr they show soms 
good exonie.] At the word "go" the Competitors went 
away at a slashing pace, and were soon out of sight to 
all the speatators who were on foot. The Buck took the 
lead ana kept galniog on his opponent, and at the finish 
Hutcherson waa nearly a quarter of a mile behind. The 
time occupied was eighteen minutes and thirty seconds. 
We learn that after this race the Buck was presented 
with a beautiful set of glass ware, by the Uiuon Glass 
House Boys, of Bomernlle, for which he returned his 
thanks. The second race was a half mile dash between 
James Fcgarty, of East Cambridge, and Bamuel Mo 
Eeever. the " Reindeer." It was won by tbe former in 
2:12. Both of these men are firemen. 

Orallxroi to Oio, Broww.— As George Brown bos 
been <• talking" raUnyibua'lhat he could beat me In a 
running matoo, this Is to Inforh him that I am ready .to 
make a match with him to run f^om I to 4 miles, for $26 
a side. Man and money ready at No. 4 Water street,

OiovB Fioht nr Boston-.— On Wednesday evening, 
(h Inst., at Plymouth Hall, Boston, a Glove Fight 
icokjlece between John Roberta and James Laverty. 
Tbe nght occupied some 40 minutes, during which time 
there was some hard hitting, of which, in cur opinion, 
Roberts aeemed to have a leetle the beat of It, Lavarty 
bebg rather slow in his movements, although he is a 
toogn bit of staff. The conteet would no donbt have 
continued fbr aome time longer, but the " Chief" and his 
aids, who were present, would not suffer it tocontlnuei 
although everything wu conducted In a qnlet and or- 
derly manner. The set-to gave great satlslactlon to the 
lovers of tbe " Manly Art," and coDvlnced all present 
(that this style of Belf-Defenoe should be more extensively 
'taught onr young men, loasmnch as It wonldiooado 
away with the ass of deadly weapcas .

East Abingdon, Mass. 



PaicB Ans Foas.- Mr. Price writes as follows : " I 
noticed in your last week's paper a conmunlcatlon firom 
Barney Ford. whIoh I tbinic a Utile severe ; bnt In or- 
der to oonvliue the pnbUo that It has been no fault of 
mine that a match has not been mode, I shall have to ex- 
plain the state of things since the match was first pro- 
posed. When 1 was first challenged by Mr. Ford, 1 
was In Conneotlont. Some, whom •! took for flrienda 
there, offered to back me for $26 aod $30 each, which 
would hare been more than the sum reonlrcd; upoa 
tbeir'-pronlses, I answered Barney's onallenge, out 
when fmnt to get themoney, those who aeemed so wil- 
ling toMck me offered to go $6 and $10 only, and, 
moreover, wanted me to go $60 in the first deposit my- 
self.. When I saw their Intention, I deterinlnea to go to 
Boston and state the ease frankly to Baroey ; I did aoi 
and some gentlemen present offered to back me for $100 
and the room money. Barney declined, aa he was sick 
at the tine. Since then, I went to make s match with 
Barney, and told him that to show I meant fighting, I 
would fijght him for a new hat, or for $S0, In an boar's 
notice, or for $200 in six weeks, and was willing to put 
up $26 forfeit; but he would not fiyht for less than 
$800 In 8 weeks. Finally, I agreed to It. and we met 
that night to draw up articles and put up $26 forfeit ; 
but when theartioles were ready, Barney said his back- 
ers would not make a match'unless I put op $160 for- 
feit. Ab I could not raise that sum. being a stranger la 
Boston, I have been obliged to let the metier drop. I 
think there is as much honor In winning a small stake 
as a large one. As I have not $S00 to Ight with, I 
should llbe to have a brnah with tiie gloves with Bar- 
nev for the amusement of a few prhate friends. 

My respects to Mr. J. Maokey, and an glad to hear 
be Is hlnaelf again, hoping he will forbear oballeoging 
me, ea I have no money ; no donbt people will thiak 1 
am worth nothing, or somebody would baok me. I don't 
blame them ; I beghi to think so myself."

Bendy offercil to lay an even ££0 he won tbe flgbt, which

ceedtdtc tbelr toDettei. The qaeatlon of referee was 
BOW Motf|iiiu(&rwaid, and npon tble point tbtre wai, of 
Conne, gr^f^lacrepancy of opinion. A number of pe^ 
tons ware mentioned en botb aldea, but each name waa 
noelred wHayMae o^eotlon, until at last tbe name of 
« Tbe Old Sqoize" was proposed. Tbla gentleman had 
ntIted tohls^)^rriage, from apprebenelonB of personal 
danger, and itrfirit declined to act, bat on being told 
that unleiB lie did the match would not In all probability 
come otr^h« acceded to tbe wlihts of tbe multltne, and 
waa eieoiied to the dde of the ring, close to wblcb be 
tookuphia'podtloa. The ooloia were now tied to tbe 
•takes, .tbat oi Bendlgo being blue with a white spot, 
•nd thtt of Caunt a brigbt orange and blue border, with 
Ibe fl^UowIng iniorlptlon In a gaiter In tbe centre :— 
"Oaunti^asd Bendlgo, for £200 a aide, and the Gbam- 
plonaSip of England, 9tb September, IMS." This sui- 
ronnded amotto, "Vay (be best man win." . All being 
now In readiness tbe foienoct ranks of the spectators 
titber 'asf or knelt down, and (tils poiltlon they malii- 
taljied until tbe disorders to wblcb we bave already re- 
ftn^ gtandoally Inoreased, and confttalon became worse 
Oonftanded. 

On stripping, the eontreii iiei-«ren> tbe men was ez- 
tnordlnary; Cannt, as compared with Bendlgo, preient-' 
cd a glganllo atptot, while bis huge limbs, dlTceted of 
tbelrcwtomary covering of lleBb,bada mott alngnlar 
•ppearance. Els tlba were as palpable aa thoae of a 
gieybpnnd, and bis long anna, tbigbi, and legs, covered 
only'irltb maioles and slnew0,gave blin tbe appearance 
of peffeot DondltloB, Hla face, too, bad a most eztra- 
•rdinaiy e:ipressIon, offering plenty of bony subatanca 
tin yibm Bendlgo might crack bla krinoUes. Hla balr 
^fUB evt tematkaUy thoti, and bla anolent scars atand- 
Ib^orth nhdlegnlsed gave a character to his mug far 
temoved fiomtbe poel'e description of Adonis. Still 
Ua eyes were bright, and there wae an ezpresslen of 
good bumor In bis lank and pale phiz that showed per- 
fect self-pouesslon, and internal oonfldence.-. His weight 
but little' ezoeeded 14 stone, and hie height; rendered 
more sMUng from bis dlnlsntlonlnbulk, waa ezactly 
6 feet 2i. Bendlgo offered an aspect maob more agree- 
able, bis eomplezlon was dear and firesh colored, while 
blafiame generally ahowed perfect bealth; blawelgbt, 
we were Informed, waa llat. 101b. His grey eyes were 
brigbt and sparkling, and bla manner eccentrlo, but con- 
fident. There is a natoial restleaaness about him which 
iras by oo means dlmlnlabed on thia oocaalon, and be 
bad evidently made up bla mind, by every dodge of 
wblob he was maater, to tteal apon hla opponent, and to 
•loape from the eflbots of bis fearftil pbysleal superiority. 
He aawtbat be wu nomercnaly aupported by bis friends, 
•ad it . was dear that be was by no means dismayed by 
the odds In height and length to wblob he was about to 
be opposed. The odds, and there was a good deal of 
betting,: may be quoted at 6 to 4 on Caunt.

Upon the character of " The Great Pigbt for the 
ChamplonablDofEngland," we have no doubt our read- 
en have fjumd tbelr own opinions. A more dlsgraoe* 
fbl BDd'disgnstIng ezhibltlon never itained'the annals 
of British boxing. 

Wltb regard to tbe pretensions of tbe two men who 
took ao prominent a part in tbe day's proceedings, few 
remarks are neoessary. Cannt, dtbongh a big man, 
and possessed of great physical strengtb, doei not 
possess tbe attribntei of an acoomplleihed boxer. He la 
defldent In science, and wants tbe art of nslngthe gUti 
of nature wltb that tact and precision wblob are calcu- 
lated to ensure eucceis. There wai a wlldnen and In- 
deolslon In bis deliveries wblfib prevented bis doing ex- 
eontlon. \nd the major part of bla blows either flew over 
Ben ' .. ' bead, or were abort or wide of their destina- 
tion. Had be been steady asd seir-poaaessed, and bit- 
tbg at points, this wonld not have been the ease ; and 
did he understand tbe perfect ait of telf-defenoe, four- 
flflbs of tbe punishment be received might have beea 
avoided, but be left himself open to attack, and thns his 
opponent wog enabled to plant on him wltb stinging 
severity. With a man of his own bulk the case might 
have been different; and perhaps tbereare few If any of 
tbe pr«.4ent day who wonld prove superior to blm in 
fair fighting. We deny, however, that Bendigo's style 
of assault Ii either fair or honorable; It'Is, on tbe con- 
trary, treacherons, and dlfTere irldely tnm our notion! 
of" a fair stand-up fight." It may be laid that so imaD 
a man as Bendlgo In oppoelUon to a mnn of OannVs 
inperloT height and weight was jastifled in having re- 
eoune'to stittagem, and that "all Is fair In war;" thla 
we deny; and the rnlea of Doglieh boxing are utterly 
opposed to snob practices. The greatest coward that 
ever breathed might conqnoi tbe bravest If be Is to be 
allowed to wait till be has a chance of administering 
punishment, and then throw himself down to avoid a 
letom'/and If so small a man can only compete with a ' 
bigger/man npon bucb tema, be ongbt not to make a 
match/ If be enters the Ring as a boxer be must abide 
by tbA rules of boxing, and,Tlolatlngtbem, he cnght to 
Baffin the penalty ofblti own conduct. That Bendlge is 
a«rave man, a bud hitter, and possesied of good aclnoe, 
we readily aoknpwiedge, and we know of no man of the 
Bune weight and age now In the fleldwhoconldenocesi- 
fuUy compete with blm. In ble ooniest with 0|imt, 
bAwever, these qualtleswere dimmed by tie adoption of 
tbe most objeotlonable tricks. Over and over.agaln.dld 
^e creep on bis man with the^stealtb^ onnning of^^' 
'tiger, deliver tbe most smsahing Uts. and then drop 
down and laugh at the success of his tactics. 

The termination of this battle created a bad feeling 
between tbe parties of the two men, and well nigh put 
an end^to prize fighting In England. It was owing to 
the dlsgraoeftal proceedings attached to this affair, that 
tbe PuglUitlo Benevolent Association was formed, tbe 
memben of which snperlntend the amngementi of 
battles, and see tbat fair play It meted ont .to all alike.

BOAT RACING. 
.Training a Boat's Crew. 

1. EtLumon orm Ifzir.— In direoting thecholoe of 
a boat's otew, itirtll bet«,be understood that the men 
to be seleoted firom, are all in good health ; bat in the 
chapter on training for pedeatrlaii pniposes, which 
will be given hereaftWi hirther advice is given for pie- 
itaring a man out of health to undertake training of all 
kinds. At flnt sight, It may appear that in rowing all 
below the waist Is idle, bat this is by no means tme, 
for the legs and thighs take their ftill share in the mu- 
oular exertion going on. Hany mistakes have been 
nude In picking men, ftom this error in jndgment; fbr 
It has been fonnd, when perhaps too late, that good 
knees and thighs are reqnired u well as good arms and 
shoulders. This Is eaally explained by a reference to 
the work which is to be done, and bj examining the 
framework which hae to do it. Now, then, what la that 
work ? It consists in pulling an oar or scnll through 
the water, by tho muscles of the arms and back. Bat 
what enables the power called into play by the arms and 
baok to act upon the boat t Why, the resisting and 
pushing power of the legs and thighs, wlthont which 
the body would glide off the thwart, and tall helplessly 
into the boat Eenoe. it Is manifest, that jost as mnoh 
as the anna generate the power by pulling against the 
water, by so much ezaotly will the lege convey that 
power to the boat by poshing against the stretcher. In 
selecting men for this beantlfnl and healthy ezerolse. 
It should therefore be bomiTln mind that the following 
points are essential, thongh, of course, this, like all si* 
milar roles, admits of exception : First and foremost. I 
should look to the moving powers— the arms, shoulders 
and back. Thess should be muscular, with good bony 
wrists, straight elbows, powerfol and pliable shonlders, 
and, above all, a good, strong, mnicalar loin. Without 
this last point the strength of arm Is of no use ; the bo> 
dy, Instead of drawing the oar to It by the masoles of 
the arm, Is itself drawn forward over the oar, and the 
stroke Is rendered Ineffective. Nothing is more difflcnlt 
than to foretel, by examination, the exsot degree of 
Btrength which any indlvldoal form is capable of display- 
ing ; bat, with regard to the baok and loin, it is almost 
Impossible to form any useftil jaJnim «iTi«hottt-a»tnai. 
Mil I for <w -muoiraependB npon early habits of varlons 
kinds, that no oonolnslon from the formation can poasl- 
bly be arrived at, It ie eeldonl that any one can say, 
with anything like certainty, that a particnlar Indlvlda. 
H ahall make a ' good oar ;' but the contrary may often 
be alflrmed, and It may generally be prognosttoated, 
that an awkward, alow, and very hlgh-shonldered man 
will prove nseleas In a boat. Next to these pchts, I 
shcnld see that the legs and thighs (wlthont being too 
heavy) ahonld be enfflolently well developed to do their 
work. If too mnaoular, it is only so maoh extra weight 
to carry, and they ahonld rather be below than above 
the proportionate Size, as oompared with the aima. Thia 
form has been apparent in most of onr best watermen, 
who have generally been remarkable for good npper 
worke, as compared with their lower extremities. After 
the moving powers, it Isneedfnl to consider the state 
of the longs and the heat. The wind shcnld be natu- 
rally good, ficee from wheezing or oongh ; and the heart 
should be healthy, and tne from palpitation or excite- 
ment. This can only be ascertained by a trial ; and, 
Indeed, that is the beat mode of arriving at an opin- 
ion on all the different essentials for this, as well as 
all other bodily exercises. With regard to size and 
weight, mnoh mnet depend npon what la to be done, 
I an now alluding to the choice of a boat's crew ; 
as for aingle contests saoh selection is generally made 
by the sculler himself, and after many and repeated 
trials. . It Is seldom, now-a-days, that a man more 
than ISst. in weight is found to "pall his weight ;V 
and 12st. 71b. is generally the top weight in an eight- 

r. This Is the result of ezperienoe, as no theory on 
the sahjeot is worth a straw ; bnt It has caitalaly been 
aseertsliied that all development of f^e above that 
wel^t Is accompanied with an increase of weight oat 
of all proportion to the muacnlar power. With the old 
tub-like bosti, which were formerly Invogae. It was ne- 
cessary to have more weight and size at the end of an 
oar than are now fonnd to be nsefol. The breadth of 
floor also was such that the increased weight did not 
buy the boat so mnoh as It now does, and, conseqaently, 
the attendantdtsadvanihgeB were not so great as at pre- 
sent. With regaid to the lowest weight whloh is desl- 
>rabie In a boat; I am iiolined to think 9at. 7Ib. Is the 
^olnt which should not be passed without strong reason 
rbrit. The difference between the bew and the middle 
oarals now mnoh less than it used to be, and the weight 
ought, oonseqaently, to be much, nearer. Ky own belief 
Is, that a difference of two stone is qatte as much as 
ought to be allowed; and that if mora than that Is given, 
the oars will not be puUed through the water in the 
tame i)nie, and with the same power, without which no 
boat l^done justice to. 

2. AfFODnmiHT of tbe Dat's Wobe.— After select- 
ing the men who are ts form the crew to be trained, it 
Is desirable, if by any means it can be accomplished, to 
keep them together day and night ; at all events, they 
should take their nns and meals together, and should 
never, especially at night, be free from turtHVanee. In 
moat oases it Is better to take lodgings near the river ; 
but when the banks are low snob a sltnation is not deal- 
rstble, and the nearest high and dry spot shcnld be pre- 
fenred. It is oommonly sapposed that, in training, ea^ 
ly hours are lequlsite, and with those who have bsM all 
theb lives aoonstomed to them, no doubt they are/ bat 
when thi habit has been different, I think it mnoh bet- 



ter to allow a moderate Indulgence in the morning's 
bed, rather than attempt to break through long-estab- 
lUhed fustom, to which the oonstitntlon hu beenlnnied. 
If the training Is in the height of snmmer, Itis deslraUe 
to get throngh most of this work In the cool of the morn- 
ing and evening] but If the weather Is not very oppress- 
Ive, the plan, In my opinion, Is not a good one. As a 
role, therefore, I should advise the fbUowlng, subject to 
variations, according to the lime of the year and the 
state of the we^er. All should turn oat of bed at 8 
o'clock ; they ahonld be well sponged all otsi with cold 
water, or they may take a mere plunge Into the river 
andont agaliL- On noaoooont sbonld they remain in 
the water even for five minutes, they shcnld then be 
well mbbed with a coarse towel, and be dressed by &80. 
From this time till breaklhst, at 9 o'clock, 1st all take a 
gentle run, or smart walk, and oome Into the meal with- 
out fatlgne, butprepared to eqjoy it. The best Und of 
food for the various meals is given under'the head of 
Pedestrianism, to which the reader is referred for full 
paitloolars on this subject. After breakfast, a oonple of 
hours may be passed In any Innocent, but not violent 
bodily amusement, such as billiard playing, bowling, 
qaolts, to., which will bring us up to 11,30 AJL, at 
which time the crew should be got together in the boat, 
and shcnld get their morning's praotloe, which will on 
the average take them till 1,30, On getting cut of the 
boat, all ahonld take a good run, varying In speed and 
distance according to the directions of the trainer. At 
2 o'clock, or 2.80 at latest, after being rubbed dry and 
the linen changed, dlimer may be aiuonnoed, and this 
meal may occupy the time till 3 or 3.S0 P.H., according 
to circumstances. After dinner, a gentle stroll or a 
book may be Indulged in till S or 6 o'clock, when an- 
other hour may be consnmed In practising on the wa- 
ter. On coming in from this evening row, sapper may 
be got ready at 8 o'clock, and at 9 or 10 o'clock to bed. 

3. Btnmraa Exracias.— The spsed and length of run 
which are to be dally maintained in order to obtain that 
condition of the lungs and heart which shall enable the 
-oarsman to go through his task, most In great measure 
depend upon the state of the IndlvIduaL In these di- 
rections I am asanmlng that the health is good, that a 
fair amount of exercise has been habltnally taken, and 
that the body isprepared to go through lis task wlthont 
risk, I have already directed that all should take a 
walk or run for half an hour before breakfast; In most 
instances a smart run of three miles will be d)cut the 
best distance; and two or three running together will 
add to the eioitem^nt, and take off from the weariness 
of the task. I think a short spin across the country, 
with moderate fences or ditohes, or small towing-path 
gates, better thana dull steadymn; and the pace shcnld 
vary from five miles per honr to an occasional spirt at 
the top speed. It is never, however, to be maintained 
at snoh a ji.ace as to prodnca tiersplration tttany.extent; 
anu'irlhe weather is very warm, the hours should be 
early in proportion. The dress should be the usual 
boating flannel trowaera, with a light woollen Jacket, 
and should never be ao heavy as to weigh down the anl< 
mal spirits. Nothing is of more Importance than this, 
for much depends in training npon keeping up that 
buOyanoy of feeling which man In a state of high health 
ought alwayi to experience. This quantity of roimlng 
exerolse.wUl In most oases be enough; bnt sometimes 
when the wind Is thick, with a veiy strong constltntlon, 
a longer and slower walk or nin Sliuuld bo taken In ad- 
dition, beginning an honr after breakfast, and keephig 
It up till the time for praotloe at 11.80, but faking great 
care to be cooled down before. getting Into the boat, 

ConilllVID KtXt will. 



THE GAME OF BAOEGAMBfOV. 
This Is a mixed game, being a combination of chance 
and oaloulatlon; The word is Welsh, and signlfles 
"Little Battle." Backgammon is played by two per- 
sons, with two boxesand two dice, npon a quodrangnlar 
table er board, on which ore figured 24 points oifteeehei, 
of two colors, placed alternately. The board Is divided 
Into four compartments, two inner and two outer ones, 
each containing six of tbe 24 points (alternate colors). 
The players are eaoh forjiebed with fifteen men or 
counters, black and white (nsnally dranghts). These 
are arranged upon the board. In the following manner. 
To play into the left hand table, two of yonr men are 
placed upon the ace point of your opponent's Inner table, 
five upon the sixth point In his oater table (numbered 
12 In onr diegram), three upon the olnqne-polnt in yonr 
own outer table (numbered 8), and five upon the sixth 
point, in your own Innet table. The advenary's men 
are to be placed in corresponding order, In a position 
directly opposite. All this is shown in the diagram an- 
nexed, and to fikcilitate reference the pohits or fieeohes 
aria numbered flrom 1 to 12 of eaoh color.

of opiiilon that hia engaging in a pagillstto conteat lo

repUcB that he will sot agree to any poatpontment of bla 
aatoh with Jones, and, as tbe latter did not deposit his 
noner last week, be Hill claim forfeit. Ibe Slasher 
adds that he will fight the winner between Broome and 
Paddock, or make • fresh matoh with Jones for £200 a 
■ids. The Slasher wUl therefore reoelTe forfeit.

two years of age. first appeared in pnbllo abont twelre 
years ago ; he was then considered a runner of no mean 
preteaaiona. and pollahed off sereral good men. but In 
sbcnt 1SS2 his running seemed to have left him, and be 
has hardly bsen btard of sinoe. Oooke, who has been 
before the public abont two years, is about twenty-one 
Tears of age, and, althongh not a first-rate elipper, be 
has won many racea At half-paat fonr o'clock the men 
appeared at tbe soratob, in racing ooatntne, and at the 
signal giren, away Brookaon bounded, and covered up- 
wards of 800 yards In the given time. Cooke then set 
off at a raUllng page. 7 to 4 was now freely offered on 
Oooke, who did not gain much upon his opponent until 
the fourth mile bad been gone over, when he began to 
gain a little, and at the ninth mile was within 120 yards 
of Brookson, whose long lurching strides made him ap- 
pear to be running remarkably easy, and havlog hts 
man safe, he aUowed him to get within fifty yards of 
him at the flnlih. Brookson was declared the winner. 
Booompliahing tbe distance in S6 minutes 86 seconds. 

Fcdkitbian Fxatb.— On the 24th, at Falcon Lane, 
Battersea, a young Ud named James Onlnn, only nine- 
teen years of age, undertook to walk 40 miles In eight 
hours, for a bet of £13 to £10, bnt he broke down in the 
22d mile, completely exhausted. A walking matcb of 
fonr miles, for a sUver watch, also cane off; ft waa won 
by Charles Westball, who stood at soritoh, giving New- 
man half a minute, Durham half a minute. Vigors one 
minute, and Woodstock a minnte-and a-half start. On 
the 23th, Westball undertook to walk 20 miles in three 
hours, bnt gave in, owing to the heavy state of tbe 
ground, after going 7| miles in 60 minutes 14 seconds. 
He started at three o'clock preoisely, and walked the 
distance he went as follows (lined by H. A. Beed) i 1st 
mile, 8mln. 4S8eo. ; 2d, Smln. 26seo ; Bd, 8min. 47sec. ;

Welsh, 80 ; J. Brookson, 40] a Fisher. 6&4-W. Lgkes.

tbelr resneoUve places till coming np the back stretch, 
when Pudney made a tremendons raih, and ran in a 
winner by a ocunlecf yards, Eden lecond, Diamond 
third, and Oooke fonrth. It was a capital race— Time, 
1 mlnnte 60 seoonds. Third best : For this H. Margete, 
27 yards start ; J. Stainor, 80 ; O. Gibbons, 40 ; and W. 
Preeton, 60— started. After a good raoe, this terminat- 
ed in a dead heat'between Hargetta and Stainor. Many 
considered that Stainor won by half a foot, bnt as there 
were neither nmplres nor a referee. It conld not be set- 
tled otherwise than by allowing them both to run in the 
decisive beat. Final heat: Tbe winners of tbe previous 
beats now toed thcEoratoh. Betting: 2 to 1 against the

' Awo miles and a half Inriher on, where an excellent ring 
was pitched, and tbe men entered, attended by fonr old 
;> and .wdl-known Birmingham seconds. Just as they 
were In the act of setting-to, the police put in an ap- 
.' pearance, and warned them off tbeground. They, hpw- 
- ever, retbed outside the riufr, and they did not again 
interfere. Both yontiis were in floe condition. Blley 
was 1^0 favorite, at 6 to 4 ; and after the first quarter 
of an hour had elapsed, 6 to 1 was laid on him, and 
taken. Tbe Shaver got tbe first blood from the potato 
•trap in the second round, and in the 20th round mansuged 
to get the knock-down blow. These were the only points 
during the fight that oonld be said to be in hu favor, 
fof ^ough he fought well, yet It was apparent to all 
I after a short tine that he had no chance wIthBUey, 
-whose superior science gave him every opportunity of 
( letting well home on his oppooent, dosing np his left 
I pile, seriously dama^ng the right, and naterlaUy alter-

Slow him to go on, gave in for bim, although against 
e game little fellow's wish. 

B. Batee of Brlerley Hill and John Page of Brlttlo- 
lane met on Harob 8, to fight at catob weight, for £10 a

AQUATICS. 
SouixxBs Hatob BxrwBiN H. Olaspxb and M. 
Tatlob.— This matoh, which has engrossed the atten- 
tion of the admlreie cf aquatic sports for the last two 
months, was brought to a conclusion on Hondav last, and, 
if we nay Jadge urotn the Immense number bfspectatois 
who assenDledon the banks of tbeTynCtWe wonld say 
that no slnllar event has created greater excitement 
since the four-oared natch be'tween Parish's crew and 
tbe Claspers, fifteen veers ago. The race was orlatnally 
made for ftSO a side, but there seemed to be alack of the 
" ciroulatuig medium" on the part of the -Taylon, ^d 
it was ultimately agreed to row for £80 a side Olasper's 
career extends over a long period of years, and he has 
rowed many a gallant raoe; and is now 46 years of age. 
Taylor Is 20 years of age, and has sonewhat suddenly 
sprung bto repute as a sculler. His trinmph over the 
Elswlok crew, and the London watermen at the Great 
National Regatta last year In tbe Manchester orew, and 
his snbaeqnent victory over Pattlnson, raised Um in the 
estimation of his friends, and hia prowess in aquatic 
circles has of late been the topic of oonversatlon; and 
many thought it wholly Inpracticable for any man on 
the Tyne to vie with him with any ohanoe of sucosss; 
hence the present match. For some time previous, to 
the race the betting was slightly In favor of OUsper; 
but on the day it veered round to 6 and S to 4 on Taylor. 
Shortly after five o'clock, Taylor was seen to enter his 
boat at the SUnner'a-bnm, and. was quickly followed by 
his opponent from the Mansion House Qnay. Eleven 
steamers, orammed fall of people, put off firom the va- 
rious quays and took np thehr posltious at the south side 
of the river. Both men had undergone a rigid course of 
training, and at the starting point Tavlor .preeented 
every attribute that even hts most sanguine supporteta 
could wish for; while, at tbe sane tint. It must be ad- 
mitted that Henry was in equally goodoonditlon. After 
a little mennuverlDR and two or three false starts, tbsy 
both daahed awar, Taylor getting the flnt hold of the 
water. Harry, acwever, was soon le vel with Us oppo- 
nent, and an oar-and-oar rate ensued natll thqr reeened 
Cooksoa's Qnay, when the " «ld>an" began gradually 



ally elad with ilvlBg masses, andlheshoutaof'Had 
away, Harry,** were perfwtly deafening. On the tope 
of the hllla a large number of the Mr sex were seen 
waving their handkenUefi, apparently delighted at the 
'• old-nn" leading kb youBg opponent. Opposite the 
shot tower, wUch was reached In 4mln 60tec, Cltsper 
was four leagths in adranoe ; and. notwithstanding the 
frequent sports cf bis opponent, he still contlaaed to 
gala. At the foot of the Ueadows, Olasper was fifty or 
sUty yards ahead, pnlliog quite easy. From thia point 
it. was a guinea to a shllllBg ca him; and at the Uead- 
ows House, wUeh was'galned In llmin 42sec, Mt»i\^' 
creased Us lead to nearly a hundred yards. Here the 
steamboats pressed too closely upon Taylor, and, owing 
to the narrowness of the channel In that part of the 
river, he was caught by a heavy ripple, and obliged to 
pull CD shore, evldeatty fatigued. Olssper continued to 
the end, winning an easy victory. The diatanoe was 
rowed in 22mln 30seo. 

BowiNo Match at Pltmouth.— A boatraoe, whloh 
caused no little excitement in this neighborhood, came 
off on Friday, March 21. Oapt. EUiot,of H. M. S. James 
Watt, backed, for a small wager, one of the boats of that 
sUp, which he should name, against the Panl Hethnen, 
a cedar six-carad gig, built at Bermuda, belonging ta B. 
Trisoott, Esq , of the R. W. V. Yard. The raoe was to 
come off on Friday, whatever might be the state of the 
weather. Abont eleven o'clock on Friday the atom flag 
wu hoisted at Devonport, and tiie wind gradually in- 
creased, and we believe the backers of tbe gig began to 
be less eonfident than at flrsL The James watt's boat, 
a large pinnace, pulling 20 oars, was manned by 40men; 
the gig by six men from Saltuh. At ten minutes put 
one they were started from the Boyal William, by Capt. 
Klngcome; the course- round the Breakwater and baok 
to the starting point. The gig, from her lightness, as 
wu expected, took the lead, but afUr the pinnace got to 
her best speed she began to lose ground. Little, how- 
ever, could be gathered as to the ultimate success of 
either until they passed Devil's Point, and began to en- 
counter tbe sea. Many excellent judges (U tbe gig's 
qnellUu in a sea were quite unhnoim) were of opinion 
that the pinnace would pass her. TUs wu not, however 
the ease, and the orew of tbe gig were obliged to some- 
what Blacken thehr speed; yet she kept the le^, and 
In pnllingthe length of the Breakwater outside; gained 
49 seconib on her antagonist. There was stiU-ft hope for 
the pinnace, u the (pg (only one foot four Inenes In 
depth) had, after ronndmi theeutern end^f the Break- 
water, to put her broadsloe to the sea, and this, it wu 
BuppoBed,would, if not entirely swamp, yet so fill her 
with water, that she would be obliged to relinquish the 
race. All the crew of the pinnace made the most prodi- 
gious exertions to overtake her. The gig, however, con- 
tinued to Increue her distance, and, contrary to the 
general expectation,' did not ship ranch water, and event- 
ually rounded tbe Royal William 3mln Msec before the 
pinnace.

WBiaTLino Match.— The Btateh, for £10 k tide, b*.^ 
tween Beecomb and Cox, came off on the 24th, at the 
Jollv Caulkers, Botherhllbe. At two o'clcek several 
admirers of the sport had usembled, and at three the 
men entered an excellent ring provided by the landlord, 
and both men appeared in first-rate condition. Buoomb

Thb Old Doo Jxit.-Thls wonderful dog gave anoth' 
er speelmen of his extraordinary killing powers on Tues' 
day last. Shaw had backed him to deetroy lOO large rats in 
Dine nlautes, giving bin thus a little extra time on ac- 
count of his growing infirmities and his want of con- 
dition, when, to the delight and amatement cf a large 
Oorlnthlan assemblage, among whom we noticed several 
familiar sporting faces from the Universities, he com- 
pleted Us task in the utonlshingly short time of 7mln 
849ee. The rats were of tbe beet deseriptica, fresh in 
from the bams, and no small amusement wu created by 
tbe vlgoroua and fierce assaults made by them on Bhaw, 
who waa backing the dog hi tbe pit.

ToBHUTo THB Tablks Bballt.— ThcrS wu a grand 
" row" lately at a lecture lo Paris. Police agents in plain 
clothes were present; they made a mark with chalk on 
the backs of the most uproarious of tbe students, so that 
they might be known and arrested when, they left the 
hall : the etndents detected the mancenvre, and slyly 
chalked the police agents ; when tbe offleers left the 
place, the Sergens de rlllearrMled them, lodged them 
in prison, and kept them therefor a day and a night.

EENTUOKT SHARP SHOOTERS. 
iBjcisufBng of a oandle with a ball, I.flrtt hadenop- 
portanlty of sating near the'banka'of the Oreen river, 
notfiir from a large pigeon-roost, to whioh I had pre- 
vloosly made a vialt. I heard many, raporta of guns dor- 
lag the early part of a dark nightt and kiiowlag them to 
be Aoie of rifles, I went towaid^ the ipot to atoertain 
the oaue. On retching the pltoe, I wu welcomed by a 
dosen of tall stoat men. who told me they were exerol- 
sing for the pnrpeea of enabUsg them to thoot under 
night at the refleoted light from the eyee of a deer or 
wolf, by toroh-llght. A Are was Uuhig near, the smoke 
of which Toee oorllBg among the thick foliage of the 
trees. At a distance which rendered it scareely dlstio- 
gnlshtble, atoed a burning candle, ae if intended for an 
offering to the goddess of night, bnt which In reility was 
only fUty yards Crom the spot on which we all stood. 
One man was within t few ytids of It, to watoh the ef- 
feota of the shots, as well aa to light the bandit should 
it ohance to go .out, or to replace it shoald the shot oat 
It aoross. Eaeh mukaman shot In his torn; Borne nerer 
hit either the snuff or the candle, and were opngratula- 
ted wlth a lond langh; while othtrs actoally snnffed the 
candle wlthoat putting it oat, and ware recompented for 
their dexterity oy numerous hurrahs. One of them, 
who was partloalarlv expert, wis very fortunate, and 
enuffed the candle three. tlmaa oat of seven, wbllat all 
the other ehets either put out the candle, or out it im- 
mediately noder the light. 



A SENSIBLE HORSE. 
Wx do not think the reeordi of Inatlnpt ever oontain- 
ed it more extraordinary instance then that we are now 
about to relate, and for the tratb whereof many rtapao- 
table witnesses pledge themielvs. Some time alnoe, Mr. 
X. Lane.ofFtecoml, In Glcnotstenhlre, England, on 
his letorn home, turned his horse into a field in which 
It had been aeeattoned to graxe. A few days before this, 
It had been shod all fours, bat aoluiklly had bean pinch 
ed in the shoeing of one foot. In the morning, Hr. Lane 
mltaad the hone, and eaaaed an active scaroh to be made 
in the vlolnity, when the following singnlar dream 
sttnoo transpired. The . animal, aa may be tappostd, 
fetllgg lame, made his way oat of the Held, by onhang' 
ing the gate with his month, and went straight to the 
same farrier's shop, • distance of a mile and a half. The 
Curler had no sooner opened bis shed than the hone, 
which had evidantly been standing there some time, id- 
Ttnced to the for([e, and held np the tiling foot. The 
terrier instantly began to examine the hoof, discovered 
the iojury, took off the shoe, and replaced it more care- 
AiUy, on which the hone Immediately turned about, and 
set off at a marry pace for his well-known ptsture. 
While Mr. Lane's aerraate were on the search, they 
ehanoed to ptss by the forge, end on mentioning their 
BDppeied lots, the furrier replied, "Oh,. he his been 
here and shod, Mid gone home tgaln ;" which, on their 
rttarnlng, they found to be the case.

THE POINTER. 

Odx engraving npresents the Englleh Pointer, the breed now generally met with. This dog is sprang from 
the Spanish pointer, bnt Is of a much lighter form, and much more rapid In his movement. He was obtained 
originally by a oross of the latter and the fox-honnd, and has tinco been recrosaed with the terrier. The English 
Pointer Is of a yarltty of elaes, being In this particular bred according to the taste of the sportsman. 



BEUAREABLE ABSTINENOE OF A DOG. 
Iw 1789, when preparations weremaUog at St. Paol's 
for the reception bfhlsMtJesty, a fhvorltebitoh follow- 
ed Its master np the ^k stairs of the dome ; here, all 
at once, it waa mlsilng, and calling and whittling were 
to nepnrpcee. Nine weeka after this, scmejglaslen 
w^re it wbft, and heard amongst the tlmben, .wUch 
support the dome, a fUnt noise; thinking it might be 
lome nnfortonate being, they tied a rope round a hoy, 
and let him down near, to -tiie pltoe whence the sound 
came.. At the bottom he found ndcg lying on its aide, 
the skeleton of another dog, and an old shoe .hialf eaten. 
The humanity of the boy led him to rescne the animal 
from Its miserable tltuatlon, and It was aeooidingly 
drawn np. tiaoh emaolated, tnd sctrcely able ib' stand, 
the workmen plaoed It la tiie porqh of the oharoh, to 
die or. live, aa might happen. This was about ten 
o'clock In the morning ; some timb after, the dog wts 
seen endeavoring to cross thestreat at the top of Lad« 
gate Hill, but lit weakness wos so great, that ansup- 
ported by a wall , he could not acoompliah It. The ap- 
pearance of the dog again excited the compassion of a 
boy, who earried It over. By the aid of the houses he 
wts enabled to get to Fleet Market, and over two or 
three narrow oroadDgs In Its way to Holborn Bridge, 
and atMut eight o'clock In the tvening It reached its 
master's house, in Bed Lion street, Holborn, and laid 
Itaelf down on the steps, baring been ten houn in Its 
Journey from SI. Paul's. The dog was so mach altered, 
the eyes being sunk in the head ts'te be soiuotly dla 
eernlble, that the master wpald hot encourage his old 
'fkitiifal- oompinlon, who* when lost, wu supposed to 
weigh twenty poonds,/ and- now only weighed three 
pounds fourteen onneea; the first Indication it gave of 
knowing Ita mister wu by wagging Its ttU, irhen he 
mentioned the name of Phlllis; for a long time It wu 
unabletoeat or-drlnk, and It wu kept alive by the 
sustenance It rilcelired Uroin-lts'mlstressi whbttstd to 
feed It wf& a teispdon; at length It reeovered. Shenld 
lt''beaiinl{ h^w did, this aidnil live near nine teeks 
without food? This was not 'the case. ' She was la 



whelp when lost, and, doubtless ate her offiipring ; the 
remilus of another dog, killed by a similar fUl, were 
likewise found, that, most probably, were oohverted by 
the surrlver to the meet argent of all natnrtl putpeaes; 
and when this treat wu done, the shoe sacceedtd, which 
wuaiffloat half devoured. What famine and a then- 
sand aoddenta ooald-not do, wu effected t short time 
after by the wheels of a ootoh, which uufbrtanately 
went over her, and ended the mortal 'dtyt of poor 
Phiilii.
